the guys at my local mac store think it's possible. i ost the name they gave me though.


at work i have some non-mac machine that doesn't communicate well with my GPS either. so far i don't care.


it doesn't matter if you get to camp at one or at six. dinner is still at six.

I have a Garmin Etrex Vista which I use with my Macs. Yes, I used a PC at work to load the Garmin maps into the Vista but I use the Macs to transfer waypoints from geocaching.com.


All you need is the Mac GPS software and a serial to USB adapter. It's no problem at all.

There's a few options:


1. MacGPS Pro (unfortunately there is no free version like EasyGPS vs ExpertGPS

2. If you're using OSX, check out roberlipe's gpsbabel....
